Artist and designer Sebastian Errazuriz is best known for his incredible mind-bending furniture, but he also consistently makes some of the most novel and innovative objects we’ve ever seen. His design objects are lesser known works, but no less deserving of the spotlight (and no less weird than the rest of his stuff.) Take, for instance, items you might find in any ordinary kitchen or dining room, except… stranger.
Perfect for any pair of lovers (or at least good friends), this split cup-and-saucer design is a good excuse to get close to someone you care about – or perhaps get to know a stranger better at your local coffee shop. It’s called T for Two, and was produced in collaboration with the manufacturer Kikkerland.
Fruit bowls are typical centerpieces of many dining room tables, so why not cut or carve a bowl right into the wood of the table itself? Clever and simple, each of these ideas is at least inspiring if not downright practical or conventional. Sebastian has also created some curious works in the realm of fashion, including an all-zipper dress and a stuffed animal fur coat.
